political capital morsey gained is he now spending. u.s. officials now expressing concern. jennifer griffin live at the white house for us now. jennifer, what are we hearing from the obama administration? nothing from the president or the secretary of state yet. earlier in the week the white house released this photograph of the president on the phone with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu encouraging him to accept a cease-fire with hamas brokered by the egyptian president. today the state department issues this off camera statement about egypt, quote: one of the as aspirations of the revolutions was that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution it did not mexico president morsey by name or the coo he engineered two days after meeting secretary of state clinton in cairo, jon. >> jon: was a significant move from president morsey, why now? >> essentially because he was elevated during this past week with the cease-fire agreement he was seen to be a peace maker, a power broker by both the u.s. and israel. >> he must feel now with all the inte
jennifer griffin will join us in moments. in arizona we just got word the man who shot congresswoman gabrielle giffords and killed 9 people was sentenced to 7 life terms in prison. we are live at the courthouse just ahead. back now with karl rove. i want to ask you whether this election could have been won if the republicans had chosen a different candidate. a lot of folks look at the man himself. too moderate. he couldn't go after obama hard enough on healthcare given his own history in massachusetts. et cetera. >> this is what's even of iably do to a -- this is what we do to a candidate who loses. who would have those would be 3 or 4 points down in the first debate. you come out swinging and make this a horse race. president obama has become the first president in history to win a second term with a smaller percentage of the vote than he did. megyn: you keep saying that but he won. that's what the republicans and democrats care about. >> every candidate looks perfect on paper. during the primary season we had all these candidates. everybody looks great on paper. but it's only the m
't told for nearly an hour. what's your view of this new timeline that's been made public? >> jennifer griffin of fox news has done a minute-by-minute comparison and people should look at it. it either shows that there were gross dare elections in communication of this or people were takenning a remarkably passive attitude. notification of this attack went out almost instantaneously yet the timeline contradict one another. there are gaffes and there are long periods, unexplained, where nothing was going on. i don't understand this. state departments were i've served, if the secretary of state were not told immediately one of his embassadors was under attack and in danger, he would fire the people who failed to tell him and it was be 24/7 for the secretary of state and white house until the americans in jeopardy were either protected or the situation was resolved. it's the passivity for hours and days and weeks after it that i find inexplicable. >> jennifer's timeline is astounding. thank you for mentioning her. the fact is they don't match upe team told to go. there was a delay of five
of the administration or basically katherine heritage and jennifer griffin is providing information. i don't think this is going to blow over before the election because there is not time. >> greta: is this a serious story. there has been some criticism for fox news to pursue it? >> i think it is a serious story. i think this was one of more dramatic things that have gained in last couple weeks. there have been incremental headlines that didn't move me that much. this one has the potential, you immediately want to know what was the response to this. what action was taken if any. why was the ambassador allowed to travel to benghazi in circumstances like that. i think it's absolutely serious. i don't think a lot of people are going base their votes on it. that is probably appropriate. i think it's really important story particularly to the families of the victims and for all kinds of national security t more about it. the problem is, it's a terrible time to have a reasonable conversation about it. i think there are people for partisan purposes and people deflecting for partisan purposes. we'll know
. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is following this breaking story from the pentagon. >> reporter: at 4:50 a.m. november 1, days before the u.s. presidential election, two iranian su-25 frog foot fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2-1 predator drone over the persian gulf. it's the first time the iranians ever fired on a u.s. drone. the shots missed on both attempted. iran's fighter pilots briefly pursued the drone that landed safely at an undisclosed location. >> incident occurred over international waters. 16 nautical miles off the coastline. aircraft was never in iranian air space. it was always flying in international air space. the internationally recognized territorial limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast. we never entered the 12 nautical mile limit. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war, the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it. adding the state department had protested through the swiss protected powers which represented the u.s. government in tehran since the u.s. embassy takeover
. the fox news national security correspondent jennifer griffin. he says he is not, doesn't plan to. can he be subpoenaed? >> good question, neil. we know right now he does not plan to appear before the closed session briefings before the house and senate intelligence committees next week. ayou know, they can subpoena private citizens so it's not clear if he will be forced down the road to testify in some way. right now he is not planning to appear before the hearings. c.i.a. will put other officials forward in the hearings. i want to read to you from the message he wrote to the c.i.a. workforce today when he announced he was resigning. after being married for over 37 years i showed poor judgment engaging in extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable as a husband and leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously ised my resignation. some of the sources we have spoken to, who have spoke within david petraeus since this announcement says his resignation has nothing to do with the benghazi incident but the timing is of interest. questions that members

on the sureless f.b.i. agent. first, to jennifer griffin working at the pentagon. how did both general allen and general petraeus know the woman named jill kelley? >>reporter: general allen was the deputy of general petraeus when he was the head in tampa bay, florida in 2010. jill kelley a well-known socialite in tampa bay, married to a, reunient surgeon and she hosted parties for top military brass at central command and would shop with general petraeus' wife holly, their families spent christmas together, and allen exchanged hundreds of e-mails that were 20,000 to 30,000 pages long when printed out with jill kelley and many characterized as being flirtatious but not security-related or dealing with government contracts, her end froms say they were harmless and might have included sweetheart here and there and allen insists he did not have a sexual affair with jill kelley and paula broadwell has hired an attorney. and her father told the newspaper that this is about something else entirely and the truth will come out. there is a lot more that going to come out. you wait-and-see. there is a
. jennifer griffin who joins us from the pentagon. there are so many things coming out, breaking as we speak. give us two or three most important things you have seen and you have heard today. >> the most important thing is how the investigation is expanding. we went to bed, thinking the f.b.i. investigation ended and then we hear the f.b.i. was going back to broadwell's house, paula broadwell's house, petraeus' mistress in north carolina. we don't know what that is all about. then we hear shortly after that, that general john allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, who was here in washington preparing for his confirmation hearings for his next job at the supreme allied commanderrer in europe, the confirmation hearings are on hold and he is now implicated in this controversy, because of 30,000 pages of e-mails to jill kelly, who is the woman who launched this investigation. so it really keeps unraveling. it's like an onion you keep rolling back. we also need to look at the contentious custody battle that jill kelly's sister was involved in. we now understand that petraeus and allen bot
powers, miller and our pentagon correspondent jennifer griffin. the factor will be right back. >> bill: first presidential news conference since last march. a republic strategist and kirsten powers, a democrat and fox news contributor. kristen and kirsten, sounds like aba is being introduced on the program. all right, powers. basically a waste of time, right? >> well, it wasn't a waste of time because there was one thing that the president said that added, i think, to the libya story when he was talking about susan rice and he basically was really offended that anybody would criticize susan rice for her statements that she made on the sunday shows and he said, you know, why is she being cite sized she went on these shows she knew nothing about benghazi. >> bill: why did she go on the shows then. >> right. exactly which raises the question. >> bill: let me set it up in case people didn't see it okay. >> bill: senator mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina are threatening to block the nomination of susan rice if the president wants her to be secretary of state which i don't think is
in the south of israel for us. first jennifer griffin live at the state department. how long does secretary clinton say she plans to stay in the middle east? >> well, her aides say she will be home for thanksgiving. so that's not very long. she plans to leave tomorrow night. they also say this is not her last peace mission. she will still be making other attempts and other trips overseas as secretary of state. her meeting with prime minister benjamin netanyahu just ended, we're told, and from the body language earlier tonight when they spoke, it didn't look like they were on the verge of a deal. >> it is essential to deescalate the situation in gaza. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> no country can tolerate a wanton attack on its civilians. now, if there is a possibility of achieving the long-term solution to this problem through diplomatic means, we'd prefer that. but if not, i'm sure you understand that israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people. >> late tonight,
correspondent jennifer griffin. >> just days after the white house released this photo of the president urging israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to accept a cease-fire with hamas brokered by the egyptian president, the state department issues this statement, quote, one of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. it did not mention egyptian president morsi by name or the virtual coup after meeting secretary of state hillary clinton in cairo. >> you must feel with the international acclaim that he has a freehand and within a matter of days and he begins to crush the internal opposition and seize power and take it into his own hands in a pretty nondemocratic way. >> and the head of egypt basically sponsored or this agreement. because he's going to get dividends from the united states, money from the the united states and very difficult to go to congress now and say, oh, do not send money to morsi. >> the u.s. finds itself in a bind, having just praised the egyptian president essentially eleva
and jennifer griffin incredible reporting on what the white house knew what the state department knew and when each new at about the tragic attack on our compound or maybe i should say what the white house of this went down. i want to take you back to september 11. reports during the attack on our compound, the white house did not convene a counterterrorism security group. this is the security linchpin that is supposed to coordinate resource among agencies and keep track of the resources each of them has as well. it was not called to meet in a car and a high-ranking government official, they were not allowed to do their jobs, they were not called upon. others telling agencies what they have been detailing all along. collective military frustration among key responders ready to be deployed but were not called up. in fact the latest reports are right, they weren't called at all. the picture that emerges is one of mass confusion and among some even indifference to watch response, if any, the u.s. would offer to protect ambassador chris stevens and other americans held up for dear life in that com
